Cloverfield 3 Release Date Delayed to April 2018

Fans of the Cloverfield series are speculating that changing dates are a way to keep us on edge.

The third Cloverfield film, tentatively titled God Particle, has moved its release date once again. It will now be premiering April 20, 2018. The film has seen quite a few delays since its announcement, beginning back in 2016 for February 24, 2017.

It was soon removed entirely from the Paramount film schedule. It was put back again a little while later, slated for October 27, 2017. This confirmed the film’s existence, but it seemed like the production was troubled (or someone is just really terrible at scheduling) as the date was changed yet again to February 2, 2018.

Now with April 20, 2018 and still no trailer or even a new batch of film photos, fans of the Cloverfield series are speculating that this might simply be a way to keep us on edge, just as the films do. A part of the Cloverfield narrative, as it were. It seems a little odd to use a shifting release date as a marketing and hype tool, but hey, it gets the press writing about it. That certainly counts for something.

God Particle is produced by the award-winning J.J. Abrams, known for his work on the Star Trek reboot and the new Star Wars movies. The film is directed by Julius Onah, known for only one full feature-length film titled The Girl Is In Trouble. A somewhat surprising choice for such a famous series, but Onah has done quite a bit of work producing a variety of documentaries, so there is a lot of experience under his belt.

God Particle will star a selection of great talent with very diverse filmographies. These stars include: David Oyelowo (Selma), Gugu Mbatha-Raw (Belle), Ziyi Zhang (Crouching Tiger, Hidden Dragon), Elizabeth Debicki (The Great Gatsby), Daniel Brühl (Rush), and Chris O’Dowd (Bridesmaids).

The film has been given only one line for the plot summary, so we know very little of what to expect. It will center around a group of astronauts on an international space station after they make a “shocking discovery.” They will promptly be fighting for their survival, and that’s all we know.
